Abstract

Increasingly, public demand for the availability of land has been increased due to population growth and the development while the land itself it was never increased. In an effort to improve the public service, then the government has established a policy of service to the community in the management and development of land development. It has issued instructions to the State Minister for Agrarian Affairs/Head of National Land Agency No. 3 of 1998 On Improving Efficiency and Quality of Community Service in the Land Service. Service management carried out by government officials in various service sectors, particularly those involving civil rights and the fulfillment of basic needs of society, including the ministry of land, the way it works is still far from the expected. The issue of ethics in Indonesia actually has much discussed but less thoroughly discussed, as there is in developed countries. Although it has been realized that one of the fundamental weaknesses in the public service in Indonesia is a matter of ethics and morality, ethics is often seen as a less important element in the public service. Another very serious problem in the context of ethics is corruption in the public service. As a country known to be very religious, is an ironic thing when Indonesia is among the most corrupted countries in the world. Issues of Corruption Collusion and Nepotism are a very serious problem facing this nation. As if - if transparency, and fairness accountability never known. Ethics is only limited as a discourse or just written in the law books - but only on legislation alone and is not in reality or not happening in the community. No implementation of principles of ethics such as transparency, accountability, and justice are always complaints by the people who deal with the land office.
